Well Good Morning all. It looks like Spring  might be coming, here in RI it snowed all day on the first day of Spring.. Oh joy.. :)...

I made this card for the House Mouse Challenge.  We had to case America's card.


I was at my girlfriends house last weekend to create cards, but you know how that can go when you only see each other once a month, talk, talk stamp, talk, talk, color...ect.. 5 hours later we might have something done.. But it is always fun to get together. This is my first shaker card I have ever made, and the only one made that day..:)

I do not know the name of the stamp I used, but it is so cute, I used the smallest thing she had, pearls and some other stuff.

Well that is it for me, must get ready for work.

Thanks for stopping by.

 And just in time, my Birthday is Tomorrow, March 7th  and I will be 60 years old.. I can not believe it, the time is flying by. When I look back on my life on all the trials and hardships, I have been blessed. God has never forsaken me and as always guided me in this journey. 
 A quick recap of my journey.
Abandoned at 2 years old, adopted by an American couple who were cruel in many ways, suicides, addictions, homelessness, by the age of 12 was told by a counselor I could write an autobiography and it would be a best seller. Saved my a merciful Father, Filled with His undying love, sharing the mercy and grace of Jesus. My life is a treasure box filled with jewels of adversity and the power of God to over come with love, forgiveness & mercy.

A Friend Loves at all times

Good Morning my blogging friends. I was up late last night making this card for Unity Stamp sketch challenge. I brought several stamps 5 years ago and never used them (bad girl) and recently just won 2 of their stamps on a blog hop, so I figured I better use these stamps.. But I did not use the one's I won, O no..I used one I got 5 years ago called  'Something Within'. 
This is such a beautiful stamp with great meaning. And it speaks volumes of one's self, we always want good friends but are WE good friends to others. I learned a long time ago to be the type of friend that Jesus is to me.

Stamp is from Unity 'Something Within'
Paper is from Miss Caroline 'Howdy Doody'

Well that is it for me, you all have a blessed week. Thank you so much for stopping by.

Enough of Winter!

Good Morning all. Well I do hope you have been warm and safe.  Here in RI it is freezing. My pipes froze up earlier this week, and it is a good thing we have a maintenance  guy here because it cost me all of 40 dollars for him to shovel and get a bullet under my house to defrost my pipes. Thank you Jesus. :). We will be having a heat wave for 2 days 30 degrees and then back to 0 tempts next week.  I have had enough of Winter!! I will be so grateful for Spring..

I made this card for Our Daily Bread color inspiration.

This stamp is from ODB, Life is a gift. I gold embossed it twice.

Then I mad this for the House Mouse Challenge, Friends.

This stamp is from House Mouse, Wheel Bearrow..  Yes I know the pearls are not straight, It is on purpose :).

Well that is it for me today, You all have a blessed week.

I Love The LORD

Good Morning Blogging Friends.. Well more snow is on the way here in RI, to night into Sat and then another storm on Sunday. I pray it will by pass Tiverton :)..

Well I had time yesterday and made this card for Our Daily Bread sketch challenge.

I Love the Lord, I so love this verse. When I wake I begin my prayer 
 by telling HIM how much I love HIM and how much I want to Love HIM with all my Heart, Soul & Mind. I love HIM because HE first loved me, a creature filled with sin, weighed down in darkness and HE reached HIS to me and filled me with HIS presence, Love & Mercy.   There is a hymn I learned early in my walk with HIM and I still sing today; OH how I love JESUS, because HE first loved me.

I am also entering this in Word Art Wednesday "anything goes."

paper: Recollection 100 lb black base, design paper was a gift..??:)
Stamp:  Scripture collection #6 by ODB
Dies: Quatrefoil pattern by ODB, memory box pearl lace, spellbinders label 14
Other: the cross is from Jolee's

Well that is it for me, you all stay warm.

To God Be The Glory

Good morning all.
 Well it has been a busy week for me, I worked yesterday Sat. with only 2 hours of sleep and working with 8 men. One reminded the others that I do not like profanity used in my presence and as the conversation went on the statement came up "that God is a women". I told them that is false, that God was a man. Then one proceeded to tell me he has never read that and that he doesn't know what translation I have been reading. I told him I have read every translation and I read daily, I strongly lead him & the others through a few verses stating that God is called father and HE... Which turned the conversation into salvation, they stated they are all going to hell with the rest of their friends and I told them how foolish, you will never see your friends because hell is total darkness, total separation,  continuous suffering, No hope of getting out. Their only hope is now, why they are alive, to except Jesus Christ as their Lord and redeemer.
I do not believe in coincidences, I believe God chose that day and that moment for these men to hear the gospel. I pray the words of the Lord penetrated their souls. To God Be The Glory..

Well I did have some time to create a few cards for some challenges. :)

I made this for Splitcoast stampers, try a new technique-down under.  I used recollections white and Authentique design paper. and a small spellbinders heart & curve dies. The verse is from Our Daily Bread Scripture collection #7. This card was also picked as a weekly favorite at Splitcoast stampers :).. 

This is for House mouse Challenge, love is in the air. This is one of the stamps I won from HM challenge. The sentiment is from the dollar bin at Micheal's.

And this card I made for Our Daily Bread, chose a color challenge.
The die is a custom die from ODB "eternity". ODB Asters & leaves, I am in love with this die, can't you tell..

Well that is it for me.  I pray all of you will have a blessed week.

Well The Weather Outside is Frightful!

Good Morning everyone. Well they cancelled work today, really? I was not going to come in anyway. As of 1 pm it was still snowing here and they were saying we were getting another 10 inches of snow, on top of the 2 feet we already got :).. But praise GOD, we have not lost electric..  I was out early this morning shoveling, and finally gave up and hired a neighbor who  had a snow blower. And he cleaned my roof all for 30 dollars :)..

Well, in the mean time I created this card for Our Daily Bread challenge, anything goes.

I seem to be in love with this die by ODB Asters & leaves, I have used it often and I used the Pennant swag stamp and matching die by ODB. So cute. Then used a flourish die to finish it.

Well that is it for me, back out to clean off my porch.

I am always so Thankful to you all who stop by and leave comments, it sure helps to keep me encouraged. :)
